    If you are writing a true argument, you'll need to have some opposition to counter. (In formal argument terminology, that's called your refutation.) Let me know if you need something to refute, and I'll give you an idea.

    I could use the idea of hands held and hands free .. but would that not be going off topic?

    Sure thank you

    Where should I place the example of another country using the ban?
    In critique or illustration.


    Are these the questions you had that you want more input for?

    1. I'd focus my argument on both handheld and hands-free devices. For the handhelds, clearly the use of only one hand on the wheel (especially in case of a sudden need for control) is a big danger. For both handheld and hands-free, it's the mental distraction that's the issue.

    2. Opposition points to refute could center on the distraction idea. I've heard people say that, even with a hands-free device, the distraction of a phone conversation is no different from the distraction of a conversation with a passenger in the car. Now THAT'S something to deal with in your paper -- AS A POINT FOR REFUTATION!! (And if you're not sure about what "refutation" means or how to include it in your paper, then go back to that www.powa.org site and read about it in the Argumentative tab.)

    3. I'd put the idea about another country's ban in the illustration section.
